Ladybug Girl is one of Lily's favorite book characters right now. I made her this outfit that she calls her Ladybug Girl outfit. The top is the Hilda top from Ottobre 6/07 #27, and the leggings are from the Farbenmix book Sewing Clothes Kids Love: Sewing Patterns and Instructions for Boys' and Girls' Outfits
She likes to wear her new outfit with the fairy wings from last year's Halloween costume for the full effect.

I found this dress to run very very wide. I actually narrowed it about 1/2 inch in both front and back prior to sewing, but it is still wide, wider than it actually looks in the picture. The lower armholes gape quite a bit. It is a cute style, but I want to narrow it more if I make it again.
Have I mentioned lately that I hate doing knit bindings? This striped ribknit stretched horribly and, even after steaming, it doesn't look great. Oh well, knowing Lily, it will be stained after a wearing or two anyway and won't matter.
Her leggings are "capri" leggings from Ottobre 1/07. I did like that pattern a lot and plan to make more of those. They are longer than capri on her now, but it is only February 1st, and these are for summer, so I have to make build in an inch or so of growth room at least. :)
